Message from Headley Bowls President Don Stephens 11th November 2020


I have decided to stand down as an officer of the Bowling Club at our next AGM.

By then I will have been your President for a total of 18 years. In that time I have been immensely proud and privileged to represent everyone as members, and friends!.
Over those years we have together helped to develop Headley Bowling Club into the welcoming home it is today, and ensure a sound basis going forward.
Good bowling

Following further advice from Bowls England lawn bowling can now take place but on the strict rules as follows:-

We are looking at resuming bowling at Headley on 1st June, as in the BE guidance we will restrict the numbers to 2 from the same household or 2 from different households per rink as long as social distancing is observed at all times.

 There will be a rink booking system operated by Sylvia, with 2 rinks available with sessions as follows

  • 11.30am – 1pm.
  • 1.30pm – 3.00pm
  • 3.30.pm – 5.00pm
  • 5.30pm – 7.pm

With a 30 minute break between sessions this will allow for the sanitising of the equipment used and leaving the premises before the next session, this should give us 4 sessions per day seven days a week.

Play will only be allowed on alternate rinks in accordance with the following:-

Week 1 June 1st – 7th Rinks 1 and 3 colour RED

Week 2 June 8th -14th Rinks 1 and 3 colour YELLOW

Week 3 June 15th – 21st Rinks 1 and 3 colour BROWN 

Week 4 June 22nd – 28th Rinks 2 and 4 colour BROWN

Week 5 June 29th – July 5th Rinks 1 and 3 colour BLUE

Week 6 July 6th – 12th Rinks 1 and 3 colour GREEN.

To ensure availability for all wishing to play, players are initially limited to booking 3 sessions a week.

We will NOT be using any of the following equipment:

  • Pushers
  • Scoreboards
  • Chalk
  • Ditch Markers
  • 2m Sticks


The following can be used

  • Mat – one person to set mat each end
  • Bowls (only handle your own bowls)
  • Jack- 2 per rink one person to set each end.
  • Rink Markers
  • Gloves
  • Scorecards (one person filling in if required)
  • Bowling Lifter if required ( to be used by one person only)


We would ask you to provide your own disinfectant i.e. Dettol Wipes for all the equipment you use this to include wiping all door handles keys and padlocks.
Please arrive by car near the time set for your session this giving the previous sessions time to clear the premises.
The clubhouse will remain closed for the foreseeable future, the toilet facilities will be reviewed nearer the date.
We would ask you to take all rubbish home with you.

Full details are available on the Bowls England website bearing in mind that all the guidance is for individual clubs to adapt as required

2020 Season- Covid-19 

In accordance with Bowls Hampshire and Bowls England guidelines we have decided to delay the opening until July which means there will be no bowling and socialising at the club. This will all be reviewed in July. There will no County or National Competitions and the Three Counties Leagues will also be delayed which will probably mean they will be cancelled for this year. We will update you when we get more information.

The Guidelines can be seen on the BH/ BE websites.

A Message from Club Captain - John Milton 

20th April 2020

Hope you are all keeping well and sane through this unprecedented and difficult time.
As today is supposed to be this seasons opening of the green I enclose a link here to photos of 10 previous openings.

You will see faces older and newer and some of members sadly no longer with us.
Hopefully we will all be meeting up again on the green in the not too distant future. Luckily in these days of the internet we can all keep in touch with our families, rather than just talk on the phone.

Keep safe and best wishes

1st No 8 T Longland

2nd No 28 R Barrett

The club organised this trip for many years and it was always enjoyed by those who went, it is usually arranged for 5 nights in November and this includes 3 meals a day and many activities to take part in and have fun.
